Stimulus? Yah--If You're a Gummint Employee

Gee, what a shock.

Wisconsin state government has used federal economic stimulus money to create or retain 8,284 jobs in Wisconsin, mostly by saving public-sector jobs.

...More than 6,100 jobs for police officers, teachers and other government workers were retained through state stimulus spending, the report said.

And the rest were Gummint contractors.

Not only were these jobs in the public sector but more importantly, they were mostly "saved" jobs.

What a f*&^ng joke.

Actually, that 6,100+ figure was just the "essential" gubmint workers like the school teachers, firemen and policemen, and those were entirely of the "saved" variety. The other 2,100 could easily be other "non-essential" gubmint workers, with a few contractors thrown in for grins.
